On 5 October 2021, Built Environment Networking brought together the great and the good in the logistics sector to consider how the industry is changing and how best to respond. With a focus on the positive, SIOR Europe was delighted to be a sponsor and support a discussion around the many solutions and opportunities emerging.
The virtual conference covered topics from freeports to climate change and congestion to technology, with speakers from companies ranging from Aberdeen Standard Investments and Europa Capital, to Prologis, St Modwin and Hermes, as well as SIOR’s industry partner TSL, a leader in turnkey capital projects.
It also looked at current and future developments, to the value of circa £6 billion, including those breaking new ground in achieving net zero carbon and those that will provide integrated, strategically located hubs across the UK, driving economic growth.
Key trends emerged:
Our key take out from the conference was a real commitment to driving improvement and best practice on every level. At SIOR Europe, we welcome this with open arms. It is why we exist.
Representing the top advisors in our industry, our members are dealing with multi-million pound/euro deals every day, many in the logistics sector. They have developed solutions to many of the challenges we heard about at the conference, and bring insight from across the UK, Europe and beyond. You can find out more about them and how they can help you here.

Despite recent advances in technology, some say that CRE still lags far behind other asset classes in terms of analysing tenants' covenant strength. Does “Blue Chip” really mean “Blue Chip” or are we influenced by the brand over the balance sheet? Significant investment transactions are undertaken off the back of fairly rudimentary data and, in the midst of a global crisis such as Covid-19, it is vital to properly assess the underlying financial well-being of company providing the income stream.
The webinar will look at what we can do to better understand our occupier base, how it relates to the underlying asset and how to mitigate future risk.
The session will be led by Matthew Richardson, co-Founder & chief executive officer at Income Analytics Ltd. He has more than 30 years-experience of working in the European, US and Asian property markets. Prior to setting up Income Analytics he was the Director of Research, European Real Estate at Fidelity International in London where he and his team developed award-winning research, strategy and risk management processes for their European real estate funds. Matt is a visiting lecturer at Oxford Brookes University in the UK and has also lectured at the London Business School, Maastricht University, London School of Economics, UCL and Cambridge University in recent years.
